Fishing was good on Tuesday, ice thickness was in the 30 inch range.

lakes were really sloppy, but should tighten up some with the cooler weather. Be careful on the north shorlines if you are driving a vehicle. Some access points were getting pretty wet from runoff and melt water.

Will do. The ice may be pretty spooky, though. LOTS of current this year. That spot you caught that pike on had hardly any ice back in January.

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
